Use Powershell to enable Group Notifications?

Frequent Contributor

When editing Groups settings as a group admin, on the bottom of the dialog there is a setting that you can check in order to send notifications to all users when a message arrives for the whole group. It is disabled by default. We have quite a bunch of groups and I wondered how to bulk-enable this feature using Powershell. As far as I could see, there is no way to do this... am I right or am I missing something?

Did you check Set-UnifiedGroup documentation? You have a parameter there for this (AutoSubscribeNewMembers): https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/mt238274(v=exchg.160).aspx

Yes, that did the trick. I had seen this switch but the documentation actually did not give me the clue that this one represented that feature (nor did the name). 

Thanks!

Just apply a little bit of imagination :-)...sometimes we have to do it if documentation is not clear
